Hello everyone, have anyone got hired as an ER technician job after recently certified as an EMT? If so, how were you able to get in without any experience?

To piggyback off this thread -- Does anyone know what the process of going from CNA/PCT to and ED tech is? Or being transferred to the ER?

I got hired in August of 2019 after graduating from an EMT program. 2 things helped me. 1 I was/am a decent interviewer who knows how to read people enough to adjust my answers to the audience. and 2. I was prior military. the people that we have hired without any experience are usually volunteers first or just have a solid look on paper.

so some ERs will allow CNA to be ER Techs but it seems like they are dwindling in size. having a phlebotomy cert will help with that.

Rural areas are more likely to hire you than metro areas, but you got an uphill battle ahead of you

Also look into EKG tech jobs. As above poster said look away from trauma centers and stuff. Either way you will learn a lot and starting at a rural or low income hospital will ease you into healthcare better
